NPR's "All Things Considered" to feature Asolo's Yentl tomorrow at 5 p.m.

The singer-songwriter behind the hits "Supermodel" and the original "I Kissed A Girl," composed updated klezmer/folk rock music for the play by Leah Napolin and Isaac Bashevis Singer (based on Singer's short story "Yentl the Yeshiva Boy").

Barbra Streisand popularized the story in the 1983 film by the same name.

The band performing music for the production features accordionist Nancy Seibert, local musicians Carolann Evans and Joe Cerrito and the third year FSU/Asolo MFA students. Seibert’s original compositions can be heard on Grammy-winning Jimmy Sturr Orchestra’s albums.
